Description

Long out of print, this seminal collection of essays and photographs by artist, theorist and filmmaker, Allan Sekula was originally published by the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 1984. Sekula sought to portray the inextricable bond between labor and material culture,  drawing deeply on Marxist theory to argue passionately for a collective  model of progress. Sekula taught at California Institute of Arts  (CalArts) from 1985 until his death in 2013, and from that insider's  position he critiqued photography and the circumstances of its production and consumption, exposing what the medium failed to represent  – women, laborers, minorities and the institutional structures that  reinforce cultural biases.
